therefore, without air-conditioning. nbc's brian moore has a look. >> reporter: the storms hit with little warning and left behind a multi-state path of death and destruction. not even mighty trees were any match for hurricane force winds. >> the word that comes to mind is horrific. the wind was howling, the trees seemed to be bending. >> reporter: falling trees were responsible for several of the deaths blamed on this sudden outburst of violent weather. >> lights were flashing, the sky was lit up. the wind was blowing 80 miles an hour and waves of rain was coming through. >> reporter: the trail of damage is immense. the stories of survival harrowing. >> and the next thing you know, there was this huge crash. >> reporter: from ohio to new jersey, millions are without power and may not be back on line for another week. the governors of ohio, west virginia and virginia have issued disaster declarations.

the san francisco police department has some new crime-fighting tools. this week it announced that 60 graduating police officers will go into the field with laptops that have internet access, gps, and can tap into the department's complete databases. department leader say it's already made a huge difference. officers are able to add more detail to each report and then share those reports more easily. it is a big step for this department that only last year gave the officers e-mail accounts. so how much would you pay to improve the view from your home? for one marin county couple the tab was, oh, about $4 million. joe rosato, jr. showed us what was standing in the way. >> reporter: you often hear about stories with breath-takinging views getting the wind knocked out of them by a construction project. it brings to mind the joni mitchell song, paved to parad e
paradise, put up a parking lot. paradise took its revenge. >> the house stuck out from the ridge quite a bit, blocked the view. >> reporter: today dave bettes' construction crew crushed a 65-foot home on belvedere home. >> it was 65 years old. >> reporter: it was basically a carriage home from when this was a sprawling estate. over the years, it had not been used. they paid $4 million to buy it and have it demolished. the winslows didn't want to talk on camera, but they said they plan to replace their panoramic
view. the view snapped to life. >> a week ago you couldn't see anything from here except the gable end of the house. and now we've opened it up for everybody to enjoy. >> reporter: everybody included neighbor roger snow whose house sat just up the hill to the demolished property. >> the view valley nice now. we sit right across the bay. it's really improved the view. when the america's cup is on, we'll have a really good view. >> reporter: even the planning department couldn't find anything historic about it, but when the walls came down, another line from that joni mitchell song came to mind: you don't know what you got till it's gone. >> you have to say, it's one heck of a view. let's check in with andy slaughter for the weather. >> notice, really not bad
anywhere across the board. 71 in san francisco. even santa rosa hit 81. head off to the east, fairfield 72 degrees. gilroy topped out at 87 degrees. even though we had that onshore flow, the clouds kind of dissipated as we headed towards noon, but they are starting to hug the coast again, and thikng are starting to fog back up. basically we're talking about more fog tomorrow morning and a cooling wind, so even though today some places got into the 80s, tomorrow it looks like we'll be a couple degrees cooler but not by much. 76 now in santa rosa. same for napa. concord 77. that cooling wind at 77 in oakland. 69 in san francisco right now and 75 in san jose. tomorrow morning again, we're basically talking about what we saw this morning. fog, little patch of drizzle, and as we head toward noon,
we'll start to clear out. monday, we're talking about mid-80s inland, so the places that got into the low 80s today, close to 90 as we head toward the fourth of july. the good news is things will remain dry, but we could definitely use some rain. a lot of that rain is going to hang out on the pacific northwest. portland, they're looking for showers today and tomorrow. the cold is basically to reinforce the wind and keep that onshore flow in place. we'll deal with fog in the morning, but by tomorrowe'll clear out nicely. 50s and 60s up the coast, 70s and 80s make their return. loss -- las gatos, 53. walnut creek, for example, and even fairfield, 83 degrees. once we get foet nins the penin
onshore flows, 68 tomorrow. not bad, close to average for this time of year. one of our northernmost spots of the bay, 87. tuesday that's when we'll see our peak heat and then we cool just a bit as we head to the fourth of july as that onshore flow starts to return. there will be a system to our north. the clouds will increase and the coastal nations will start to cool just a bit, but you know, diane, i don't see a whole lot of rain. i don't think we'll see a whole lot in the next 7 days, and if you're like me and you love the outdoors, you have plenty of plans for perfect conditions. >> and we get to do that a little more during the week. still ahead at 6:00, a london neighborhood is furious over how police wants to use its buildings for the olympics. can you say missiles?
hundreds of people took to the streets of london today. they're protesting britain's military which is considering putting missiles on roofthe roof buildings for security during the olympics. as of now, six sites have been picked for surface to air missiles, some in residential spots. officers said this measure will keep the games safer, but some say if the missiles need to be used, they will be exploding over the densely populated areas of london. they say this ruins the spirit of the olympic games. marilyn coggin nearly kept her quest alive. she has one race left in order to qualify for the summer games. she swam just fast enough last night to advance in the 100 meter freestyle.
the finals are tonight. you can watch her starting at 8:00 tonight. right now we're bringing in henry wooferd at comcast. a little baseball, soccer action. what's going on? >> we're going to watch some soccer. highlights, that is. u.s. and canada women in a very competitive showdown. and the cincinnati reds are giving the g-man a tough time this weekend. two first-place teams swinging for the fences. we'll have your highlights and post-game interviews, next.
. hey, whenever you're sitting in first place, there is a huge target on your back, but it appears the giants and reds are up for the challenge. so far neither team is backing down. reds and giants split the first two games of their four-game series and we had another close game this afternoon. let's go out to beautiful at&t park for all the action. look at who is at the game. barry bonds taking in the game watching barry zito on the bump. top of the 4th, we were scoreless. bases loaded. brandon phillips will laugh his way home to make it 1-0, top of the 5th. bases loaded, but jay bruce lies into the 6th. top of the 7th we go. pablo flashing the leather for the second straight day.
drew stubs pops up the bunt, but he's hustling out there with a diving catch. 9th inning, giants fans bringing out the rally. he gets the rally started hitting a triple to right center. however, the next batter, greg blanco scores. but they seal the deal by ending the game. reds win 2-1. let's hear it for the g-man. >> we knew we had to work it out, and he has been tough on us, but we've had some good games against him. we knew, you know, what we were going into, but when a pitcher, a good pitcher, is on top of his game, you do all you can to compete and hopefully get some runs, and we just had a tough time today. >> all we can do is just try to
do the best we can do. today was a tough day, yesterday was a tough day, but still early in the season and we still have to play every single game and try to win. >> reporter: giants and reds will wrap up their four-game series tomorrow afternoon. you can catch the action right here on comcast sports bay area later in the afternoon. how about u.s. and canada in the final team-up? alex morgan injuries her knee, clearly in pain. she will leave the game under her own power. the team says it was a precautionary measure. 1-0 u.s. melissa tancreney, tied at 1. megan rapano and amy rodriguez
